     The F-35 stealth jet has already cost the military more than 
$350billion
     But in a mock battle it was outperformed by an F-16 designed in the 
1970s F-35 test pilot said new plane was too cumbersome to dodge enemy fire
     He deemed it totally inappropriate for fighting aircraft within 
visual range
